I have avoided installing PostgreSQL on my Mac, as it is not possible
to easily remove it, and I really hate to have the "postgres" user on
my Mac login window. :-)

I don't have FileVault active, and I really have no issue with
performance of PostgreSQL running on the Parallels virtual machine
other than for this task.

I will try to collect the same log also from our deployment server,
that is on a Solaris zone c/o Joyent.

I will keep you updated.

Thanks for your attention.

Best regards,
